Orlando Bloom Confirms His Dog Mighty Is Dead And Gets Tattoo Tribute
Orlando Bloom has confirmed that his dog Mighty is dead after he went missing. In an emotional post to his Instagram account, the actor has shared a video of him getting a tattoo of the little guy's name on his chest.
It comes after the Pirates of the Caribbean star revealed the heartbreaking news that Mighty had disappeared from his California mansion earlier this month.
In the post to his social media account, the 43-year-old said that he had 'wept more than I thought possible' since finding out that he wasn't coming home.
He wrote: "Mighty's on the other side now.
"After 7 days of searching from sunrise to sunset and into the wee hours, today, the 7th day ~the number of completion~ we found his collar... I have wept more this week than I thought possible, which has been very cathartic and healing... I left no stone unturned, crawled thru all the man holes, under the roads, searched every back yard and creek bed.
"Had two separate sniffer dogs do their best as well. I feel so grateful to have learned from my little Mighty man that love is eternal and the true meaning of devotion.
"I feel sure he was looking down on me whistling in every back yard and knowing that I was doing all I possibly could to respect our bond.

"Thank you to the community for allowing me to search through their yards for him and supporting my midnight walks. It was reassuring to see the best of people even in the worst of times. To the angels of @dogdayssar I'm forever in your debt. You ladies are heaven sent.
"Lastly thank you to @scottcampbell for the ink. I love you brother."
Photographs published over the weekend showed the Bloom trekking through the streets in a desperate attempt to find his best mate.
At the time, he said it felt as if he was living a "waking nightmare".
He said: "I don't recall a time in my life where I've been so broken wide open. The rawness I have felt over these past few days and sleepless nights at the idea of my little man being lost and scared, with me unable to do anything to protect him, is a waking nightmare.
"I feel powerless... maybe like so many others who are losing loved ones or unable to see our loved ones because of the times.
"Cherish the moments we share with the ones we love because nothing is promised. Trust it and don't be afraid of love or the fear of losing love. Love is eternal."
